Zoom Hosts

RVGS has been successful in pivoting during COVID and moving all our events to an online platform, maintaining services for our members while keeping them safe. Each time a class or event is offered on Zoom, it requires one to two Zoom hosts. Unfortunately, only a few people have stepped forward to assist with this job and the many events that are offered every month are falling on their shoulders. To continue to offer our full slate of online programming, we need more volunteers.
